Medium Africa Reinvented - Book Sculpture

R 3,900.00

This piece is called 'Africa Reinvented' and is made from old paperbacks salvaged from the recycling pile. Tons of books get pulped every year or just dumped in a landfill - through using them and turning them into art pieces I hope to give these books a chance to tell another story. 

Each book page is folded individually and this creates the interesting shapes and patterns. I then cut the books to different sizes and glue them onto a piece of rigid board. This has a sturdy hook on the back for hanging the piece on the wall. Each one is signed.

This piece is sold UNFRAMED.  The photo featured is an example of what the sculpture would look like framed.

Please note:  Each piece is made individually and as such will not look exactly like the photograph featured - colour, shape and heights of the books used will vary. 

The piece is available in 3 different sizes as well as for custom size orders.   

Small - 55cm x 45cm x 5cm 

Medium - 65cm x 55cm x 7cm 

Large - 75cm x 65cm x 9cm

** The Different sizes can be ordered via their own listing **
